Their structures have been proposed on the basis of elemental

The polychelates are dark colored and insoluble in common organic solvents. Their thermograms showed the loss of water of hydration in first step followed by decomposition of ligand molecule. The thermal data have also been analyzed for the kinetic parameters using Horowitz-Metzger method. The electrical conductivity of ligand and its polychelates showed semiconducting behavior. All the polychelates were found to be active against a variety of bacteria.
